RAF’s No. 180 Squadron was formed at West Raynham, Norfolk, in September 1942 as a light bomber squadron equipped with B-25 Mitchell bombers. Early in October it moved to Foulsham — also in Norfolk — and it was from there, on January 22, 1943, that it flew its first operational mission against the enemy — a raid on oil targets at Erneuzen (Ghent) in Belgium. Of the six aircraft which took part in the raid, two failed to return.

The B-25 Mitchell was a twin-engine medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation and used by the United States and Allied air forces during World War II. It was named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. First flown on August 19, 1940, the B-25 entered operational service in 1941. Nearly 10,000 B-25s were built in numerous variants.

The Corgi Aviation Archive features a wide selection of high quality, ready-made, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using specifications of the original aircraft. Corgi models are built from diecast metal and some plastic components.
